15 yo young lady w double (adolescent idiopathic scoliosis) AIS curve ans seizure disorder straightened up today!!

Surgery: T5-L3 instrumentation and fusion
Surgical time: 3 hour 15 min.
Complications: none.
Correction: excellent. Near 100 per cent.
One of the big benefits of fixing scoliosis with curves in 40's rather than 60"'s or 70's or 80's is that we can usually get a better final correction, especially in the younger and more flexible patients.

 A very good day here in Room 12 Duke Raleigh Hospital. Good music, great team, good aura.
